    Right, i have £1700 to spend on a new system and i was going to get the Ultima Vanquish Intel Core i7 930 2.80GHz @ 4.00GHz Quad Core DDR3 System with a xfx 5870, but i have seen the new AMD system Ultima Raptor AMD Phenom II X6 Six Core 1090T Black Edition 3.20GHz @ 4.00GHz DDR3 System, i don't know if i should go ATI or Nvidia for my GPU, and i'm now stuck as to which system to get, i want the best sytem that £1700 can buy and one that i can easily upgrade in a year or two, any help would be much appreciated, the system will be used for gaming ie TF2 BC2 MW2, general everyday use, software used mainly will be mixmeister fusion+video and ableton live.

    I think amd is the only way to go if you want to upgrade in a year or two, although i believe that is questionable to whether there will be a new socket
